Iwa Kakeru! Sport Climbing Girls Episode 11: Redy 2 Rumburu

We wrap up the speed training and get set for the big competition.

Mimu Takahashi

When we last left Konomi she was shocked to see another climber complete the speed course in record time. She tried approaching her for tips and was surprised how easy it was. The cutie in question was Mimu Takahashi, another girl with a cat motif. That’s three now.

Mimu's secret

Basically the secret to Mimu’s technique was timing perfected by playing rhythm games. Konomi, while proficient at puzzle games quickly adapted to the technique.

Konomi achieved her goal

Thanks to her new knowledge and extra training she’s able to achieve her goal of under 15 seconds despite not beating than Ooba in a race.

Mimu wearing a familiar logo

After the training camp officially ended Konomi went to thank Mimu for the pointer when she noticed the logo on her jacket. She was on Kurusu’s team and they’d face each other in the tournament. At least this kitty seemed nicer than her captain.

Oni Teacher Sayo

Meanwhile Nono had, in her words, hardcore training from Captain Sayo. I believe her.

Jun more focused than beforeNono more focused than before

In a cute surprise Kiku joined the team to help with some last minute training. She’s surprised to see Nono and Jun, who didn’t do well in the last tournament, perform leaps and bounds better here. As Sayo explained they both worked hard to overcome their flaws, Jun with her improved focus and Nono finding ways around her shortness, creating a spider and frog hybrid style. However, as she proudly praised her team’s improvements she seemed to be concerned about something. Nono noticed but Sayo dodged the subject when asked about it.

Sayo training

The next day Sayo showed off her awesomeness. However, while very impressive Nono again noticed something was wrong. She took her to the back for a serious talk.

Nono X Sayo 2

When I first began watching this show I thought it’d either be about the growing relationship between Konomi X Jun or a Konomi harem. I did not expect the best couple to be Nono X Captain Sayo. Well, they are longtime friends turned sweethearts so it shouldn’t be surprising. Anyway Nono pushed Sayo until she confessed her hand hadn’t fully recovered yet and knew pushing herself could put her climbing career in great jeopardy but she wanted to take the risk so she could compete with everyone. She didn’t want to disappoint her team, especially Nono, and the two were close to graduating high school from the looks of it. Nono leapt toward Sayo bawling her eyes out telling her not to throw away her dream. She would take over as team captain and lead their kouhai to championship gold. Sayo accepted teary eyed herself.

Bad Kitty kinda reformed

Looks like Bad Kitty’s done bullying newbs and focused on beating our heroines fair and square.

Kiku worried about Konomi

Kiku’s adorable. Although she couldn’t compete due to her not being a student at their school they happily accepted her as part of the team. Maybe she’ll enroll there before Konomi and Jun graduate.

Team Kurusu

Not much to add about the Royal Rumble so far other than the main obstacle for our heroines being Team Kurusu. I don’t know whether this will be a 12 or 13 episode show, meaning next time will either be the G-View or discussing the first part of the Royal Rumble. We shall see.

    I absolutely love this show alot more then I thought I would but if there is one negative it’s that damn cool kurusu. I mean I didn’t think anything could be more annoying then the many different laughs of one piece. That hug scene was great I guess only her soulmate could understand what she was saying. Heres hoping Konomi X Jun gets some love on the finale.

    Nice to see Konomi improving a lot over the course of the speed climbing camp. She’s really turning into a force to be reckoned with.

    Sad to see Sayo having to sit out the big event, but her health and safety comes first and if she wants to see her dream through to the end then this is for the best. Plus everyone has improved so much, she’s got nothing to worry about!

    Not sure if this is going to 12 or 13 eps, but whatever the case, we’re in for a very exciting finale!

      Konomi’s development throughout the show has been excellent.

      Her girlfriend and team have everything under control. They’ll give it their all and make her very proud.

      Hoping it’ll be 13 episodes but if the next episode is the last then it’ll undoubtedly be an awesome finale.
